Does the healing take place mostly because Paleo is a grain free, daily free, sugar free diet. Hard to believe that full fat organic meats aid in the healing process.

143% daily value for b6 in 8oz of salmon. 142% daily value for b6 in 6oz of liver. Decent amounts in meat, throw in a few lbs of plants and you should be good.

Organic greens (spinach, kale, salad greens, etc.), liver, grassfed butter, bone broth, meat, wild caught fish - especially salmon. Good quality extra virgin olive oil, red palm oil. What's not paleo: spam!

The veg needs to be completely submerged. Anything sticking out will rot, not ferment. Your set-up needs to breath. No air-tight containers while it is fermenting. Once you transfer it to the fridge, air-tight containers are fine. My kitchen... (more)

To build muscle you need protein, calories, and rest. Carbs definitely help the muscles pop, and provide a great source of calories. So I would try to add some starchy vegetables and some fruit to your diet. Things like Yuca, Potatoes, Sweet... (more)

Sodium to Potassium is very important as a contributor to hypertension. The RDA on potassium is 4g/day but most people would be lucky to get half that.
